Mackerel is always best super-fresh and the season runs from July until February so you've got plenty of time to enjoy it. During the summer, we love this recipe for grilled mackerel fillets with lime mojo - the acidity of the lime and orange works really well with this oily fish

Ingredients

  • 4 mackerel fillets
  • a handful of each watercress or rocket or lambs lettuce
  • 1 orange, skin cut off and segmented

MOJO

  • 125ml olive oil
  • 3 limes, 1 peeled and segmented
  • 2 oranges, 1 zested and 2 juiced (you need 90ml) 
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • ½ tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp ground cumin

Method

  • STEP 1

    Make the mojo by whisking all the ingredients except the lime segments together, season well. Add the lime segments just before serving.

  • STEP 2

    Brush the mackerel with a little oil and season well. Heat the grill to high. Grill the mackerel for 5 minutes skin side up or until the fillets are just cooked through – the skin should be nicely blistered. Mix the leaves and divide between 4 plates, add the orange segments and a fillet to each and then spoon over the mojo.
